I finally got a little time (and sunshine) to head out to the local nature center to fiddle around with my 600mm VR lens and try it with the TC-20E III. When you are using long lenses, tripods are absolutely mandatory; hand-holding is not at all feasible (well, maybe if you pump iron like Ah-nold).
I’ve got a trip planned to photograph birds in Florida next week. I’ve decided on two locations. First, I’m heading to the Saint Augustine Alligator Farm. Second, I’ll visit the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. Both of these locations are within a few hours drive of Orlando or Jacksonville.
